Movie Info

I Take This Oath was the first official release from Producers Releasing Corporation (PRC), formerly known as Producers Pictures Corporation and Producers Distributing Corporation. Gordon Jones stars as rookie cop Steve Hannigan, who takes it upon himself to avenge the murder of his police inspector father (Robert E. Homans). The killer is the supposedly respectable head man of an insurance policy racket. As he probes farther into the case, Hannigan discovers that the culprit was not only a murderer, but a modern-day Judas as well. Joyce Compton, usually cast in dumb-blonde supporting roles, is a most effective "straight" heroine. Like so many future PRC epics, I Take This Oath was directed by Sam Newfield, here travelling under the alias of Sherman Scott.
